The Rivers Trust is keen to foster a longer term understanding and appreciation of rivers and the benefits of good water quality by providing teachers of primary school children aged 5 to 10 years with an education tool that they can basically use “off the shelf” to meet requirements of the National Curriculum in England and Wales.
RT is therefore pleased that Eden Rivers Trust, which has a strong primary education bias and experience, has prepared a generic education pack for use primarily by other rivers trusts in the England and Wales . It includes information and resources on river investigation for Key Stages 1 and 2 under the English National Curriculum, but will be of benefit across the EU as a template for the education of younger children. The full education pack can be downloaded by clicking on the links in the download column below:
The education pack has been prepared under RT’s U.TdR project, which was part funded under the Interreg IIIC programme. Full documents can be freely downloaded for non-commercial purposes with due acknowledgement of the original authors; Interreg IIIC and The Rivers Trust.
